Network Maps for use with JUD Game
This is an article by Drew Mackie that accompanies his 'JUD Game - Boxed' article. It shares the Network Maps that were used with the game at the JUD May Event. Please note that these are shared for indicative purposes only to help others adopt the JUD Game. It is likely you will need to form your own maps to suit the game you design (we recommend the tool kumu.io for creating your network maps), but hopefully these will give you inspiration of what's needed.
National organisations network map
This sample map is a composite of survey results from three events whose attendees were mainly national organisations. Each respondent indicated who they worked most with. The events were mainly centred around ageing (AAA and Age UK London) and the use of digital tech (NPC). The nodes represent both organisations and key individuals.
NB: this map does not represent the views of the organisations shown on the map - the relationships were based on the views of individuals at few meetings.
Local organisations Map - 'Slipham'
Slipham is a fictional town based on a typical London borough. The map below was generated from a wider Slipham map that David and I have built up over the years. For the JUD game, we added a range of ageing-related organisations.
These maps were prepared based up the Ipsos Mori personas created for the Centre for Ageing Better. The aim was to give participants at the JUD May event a snapshot of their close-network relationships to family, friends and support. We should be thinking about using these maps as exemplars of life transitions.
Note that red nodes denote a presence on the Slipham map and red nodes with a bullseye have a player in the game.
